Hi I'd really appreciate it if you would tell whether or not this supposedly vintage Burberry trench is authentic or not. I was told by the seller that it is vintage 60s or 70s.

That's pretty much a genuine 'Burberrys', as the old label says. (In the early 2000s, the 's' got dropped, now the labels say just 'Burberry'.)

I believe the coat with the heavy Polyester content to be somewhat later, presumably 1980s.

Thank you, I guess the biggest doubt I'm having is on the name tag, the part where that dot in the circle is centre whereas I've seen it on other jackets slightly higher or lower. Did they vary like this or is this a tell tale sign of whether it is fake or not?
Thanks and all the best
Sam
